The price was right, too. Breakfast was good and everyone was pleasant. Overall it turned out to work out even better than I expected. Would definitely... More

My wife, daughter and mother-in-law stayed here for the weekend. The two bedroom suite was a good money saver, compared to two individual rooms. The suite was clean, and we had enough towels. The gas fireplace worked. There were 3 flat screen TV's in the suite. The fridge was clean too. The free buffet breakfast was good. It wasn't gourmet... More

We traveled to see the new baby--my 90 year old Mother's first great grandchild. The handicapped room was perfect. The shower had no barriers. We loved it

What were they thinking? At first I though the room smelled of cigarette smoke, but maybe it was just the cleaning agent they used - possibly carbolic acid? Except for the TV the room was worn out. The refrigerator was old, dirty and the door shelf was broken (no way to stand up an open bottle of wine therein). The... More

We found this hotel after the reservation at another hotel fell through. They were very accomodating and able to get us a room last minute. We had a 2 bedroom suite. Each room had a queen bed and the beds were very comfortable. We never heard any other noise from outside or inside the hotel. There was also a sofa... More

We have stayed at this property numerous times in the past 4 years. We have family in DC/Northern Virginia area and it is always difficult to find reasonably priced hotels. If you have a car, this is the place to stay. It's only a 15/20 minute drive into DC, the rooms are huge and breakfast is included. Plus the parking... More
